Roberto Martinez Trujillo was born on June 7, 1934 to Raquel and Pedro Trujillo in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He was the oldest of eight children. Being the oldest came the responsibility of helping to care for his younger siblings. He would help his parents as they traveled through several western states following the crops. Roberto would share with his kids and grandkids the adventures of the family during those years. The family finally settled in Livingston, CA in 1959 where he spent the rest of his days. He worked for Gallo, Kishi Bros and retired after working for Joe Alvernaz for 30 years. He spent his time in his backyard, listening to music and tending to his many fruit trees and garden. He also spent precious time with each of his grandchildren. Changing diapers, taking them outside to “look at the moon” and driving them to and from school.
Roberto is survived by his wife of 60 years Mary Lily, children Sophia (Chuck), Robert (Luisa) and Javier also, his cherished grandchildren Aaron (Kaci), Elianna, Elias and Dominic.
Roberto passed on November 27, 2020 to join his parents, brothers and sister in Heaven. He is our beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather and will forever be in our hearts.
